SANTA BARBARA, CALIFORNIA - It can be difficult to enter a technologically advance cancer treatment facility as a patient, and receive emotional support along with top-of-the-line medical care. That's why The Cancer Center of Santa Barbara, founded in 1949, merged in 2012 with Sansum Clinic, a healthcare company founded by Dr. WIlliam David Sansum, and shared the same vision for improving in California. He is admired for being the first person to manufacture U.S made insulin, and administer it to diabetic patients. The Cancer Center of Santa Barbara, and Sansum Clinic with the help of the Cancer Foundation of Santa Barbara, raised an estimated $53 million dollars from charitable donations to build Ridley-Tree Cancer Center, a three-story, 54,780 squre-foot medical center.
Lady Leslie Ridley-Tree sits as the Chief Executive Officer of Pacific Air Industries, a mid-sized aircraft parts redistribution company, and is the face of humanitarianism in Santa Barbara, California. She philanthropically donated $8.2 million dollar gift check towards the development of the new Ridley-Tree Cancer Center, a $68 million dollar multidisciplinary cancer treatment center, providing the most advanced radiation technologies, and Harvard, Yale, UCLA, and USC trained doctors to name a few. The new Cancer Center purchased an extraoridinary automaton from Xenex, an exclusive provider of the LightStrike Disinfection Pod, which the Cancer Center is using to protect patients, and combat healthcare-associated infections.
“"Patients being treated here are often immunocompromised as a result of their treatments and susceptible to infectious disease. The microorganisms that cause infections are getting smarter and becoming antibiotic-resistant, which is why we need new weapons like the Xenex robot to destroy them before they pose a threat to our patients,” said Matthew Kunkel, Vice President of Oncology Services at Ridley-Tree Cancer Center.
Thanks to the monetary donations from the Roke Foundation, a non-profit organization in the civic, and social associations industry, the Ridley-Tree Cancer Center purchased several Xenex® LightStrike® Germ-Zapping Robot™(s). Their medical staff has named the robot, "Dr. LightStrike Flash," which uses high intensity ultra violent energy to penetrate through the cells walls of microorganisms, and in microbiological terms, spores. The LightStrike disinfection pods use photohydration, photosplitting, photodimerization, and photo crosslinking to damage cells. In a broader sense, a Xenex® LightStrike® Germ-Zapping Robot™ eliminates the possibility of binary fission, or, cell reproduction.
